Christmas-fy Dem Avatars

Now that 2Spooky4me Day has passed, it’s time for a new reason to screw with our avatars. Time to bust out the Santa hats and mistletoe, and rev up that MSpaint.

“But Jack,” you’ll surely say, “it’s only November! Surely it’s too early to do this!”

And you’ll be horribly wrong, you terrible person. How dare you. Go sit in the corner. It makes much more sense to have the festive avatars ready beforehand. Then you can switch to it at 12:00 AM exactly on December 1, like any other normal person with their normal priorities will be doing.

So have at it, post your winter avatars and hang your Karma stockings. And if you’re terribad at drawing you can always post a pic you want Christmas’d and see if someone accepts the challenge.

Sounds good to me. A Santa hat will fit nicely on my head!

I guess I should start thinking about that. I should think about a holiday job for the description that goes with the avatar, too.

Can’t we get past Thanksgiving first? I haven’t even taken down my Halloween decorations yet.

My thoughts exactly.

Here in Canada, Thanksgiving was a while ago. I think we shouldn’t celebrate “American Thanksgiving” here, because Know Your Meme is an international community. We don’t Celebrate Independence Day, Canada Day, and other such holidays here, because they are not for everyone. Halloween is on the same day worldwide, and so is Christmas, New Years, Valentines Day, Easter, St. Patric’s Day, etc., which is why we celebrate them here as a community.

Correct me if I’m wrong.

(Cough *Patrick cough)

They’re not saying that we should celebrate it, rather that we should wait until after American Thanksgiving to celebrate Christmas.

While I love Christmas, I (like a great many Americans) consider preparations for Christmas before Thanksgiving to be “Early Christmas” which get sickening. It’s a whole lot easier to get tired of Christmas if we’re prepping for it a full 49 days in advance, after all.

(On a related note, Christmas is 49 days away.)

We’re not celebrating Thanksgiving by doing this; we’re just using it as a time to set up Christmas avatars. Also, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day are primarily western celebrations. Besides, how much effort would it really take to change your icon, if we were celebrating those days?

I don’t have time for Christmas and all that bullshit. I got me money to count. Just remember to tell me when tiny Tim dies so I can cut your pay.

No, I absolutely love Christmas. I don’t love people reminding me about Christmas two months before it actually happens.

There isn’t that many good Santa Reimu’s out there, but this was fitting.

Well, there was one, but I can’t seem to find it again. I used it last year if you remember.

Ehhh…Naoi isn’t a well known character, and was a major side character in Angel Beats. I only have like 3 winter avatars of Naoi.

I can’t manipulate pictures effectively, but if someone would Christmas up this picture, I’d be grateful.

…please?

Decking those halls. Ha. I don’t know if you intended for that to be a Yu-Gi-Oh! pun, but it was.
